I found the following article in THE VERNON COURIER (lmar Co. Ala.) Oct. 17, 1889 issue, page 4 and thought it might help someone.
On last Saturday ninety-two of the veterans of the “Lost Cause” met in Vernon and marched into the Court House.They proceeded to organize by electing D. W. HOLLIS chairman and J. E. PENNINGTON secretary.The next business before the body was the election of five delegates to the meeting of the State Association in Birmingham on the 29th inst.The following were elected delegates: M. A. TAGGART, J. P. YOUNG, L. M. WIMBERLEY, J. D. MCCLUSKEY and D. J. LACY; with the following alternates: F. OGDEN, G. P. STAPP, S. J. SHIELDS, S. H. HANKINS, and M. W. LOYD.A roll of those present was then made up, and after a resolution that the proceedings of the meeting be furnished The Courier for publication the meeting adjourned sine die.
The purpose of the various organizations throughout the State is to establish and maintain soldier’s homes in which to care for those who on account of age and injuries received in the war, are unable to maintain themselves. The meeting here was full of enthusiasm, and certainly well attended considering the surrounding circumstances, and that perhaps one third of the survivors in the county were present,
Through the kindness of the secretary we are enabled to give the roster of the association, which is as follows:
